What's Going On

(collaboration with various artists – NSync solo’s are in bold)

 

What’s going on
Tell me
People dying
(Yeah)
People crying
(Uh-huh)
Lord help us
(Come on)

Mother, mother
There’s too many of you crying
(Uh-huh, yea)
Oh, brother, brother, brother
There’s far too many of you dying
(That’s right)
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today
(Uh-huh, oh)

Oh my father, father
(Father)
We don’t need to escalate
(Need to escalate)
You see war is not the answer
(War, yea)
For only love can conquer hate

You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today
(Say what)

Barricades
(Sister)
Can’t block our way
(Sister)
Don’t punish me
(Sister)
With brutality
(Sister)
Talk to me
(Sister)
So you can see
(Sister)

Oh what’s going on
(What’s going on)
What’s going on
(What’s going on)
Yeah what’s going on
(What’s going on)
(Tell me)
Ahh what’s going on
(What’s going on)

What’s going on in a world filled with pain
Where’s the love for which we pray
What’s going on
When our children can’t play
Homeless can’t eat
There’s got to be a better way
What’s going on
When we politically blind
Can’t see the signs of endangered times
What’s going on

Ah, ah, tell me
What’s going on in the world today
I’d rather be dead
Than turn my head away
We gotta first world vision to complete, to lift our
Hands in the air and cry for a switch

Father, father
(Father help us, come on)
Everybody thinks we’re wrong
(Yea)
Oh, but who are they to judge us
(Who are they to judge us)
Together we can all be strong
(United we stand, divided we fall)

Oh you know we’ve got to find a way
(Yea)
To bring some understanding here today
(Come on)

Barricades
(Brother)
Can’t block our way
(Brother)

Don’t punish me
(Brother)
With brutality
(Brother)
Baby talk to me

(Talk to me)
(Brother)
So you can see, yeah
(Oh)

What’s going on
(What’s going on)
Hey, what’s going on

(Wanna tell me)
(What’s going on)
What’s going on uh

(Somebody tell me)
(What’s going on)
What’s going on, yea
(What’s going on)

What’s going on ‘cross seas
Every minute a child dies by this disease
In record numbers indeed
Got momma’s crying out please
My baby hold on
My child ain’t done nothing wrong
Still I want to holler
Ask them why they don’t bother
Oh no, oh no
Make me turn to my father
And ask him why they all got a trapped soul
(Trapped soul)

Yo I can feel what was bothering Marvin
Why his words forever remain
Dealing with these modern day problems
‘Cause of ignorance surrounding me and my constituents
Too many infected
Too many lives diminishing
Nobody say Protestants, Jews, Blacks, and Whites, Latinos and Asians
Pray together
Less fight
We better unite
As genocide chemical war
And the rich and the poor
Know that God delivers a cure

It’s a shame our reality is devastating
People praying for a cure
Dying while they’re waiting
Ask the Lord for the comfort and strength to face it
All the kids with dreams
Won’t get the chance to chase it
Makes me sad
Think about the lives they would’ve had
Think about the orphan babies got no moms and dads
How can we sit back and not try to make it right
We gotta come together
We gotta fight for life

Somebody tell me what’s going on
(What’s going on)
We got human beings using humans for a bomb
(Yea)
But everybody wanna live
Don’t nobody really want to die
You feeling me right
(Right)
I can’t be watching people die
(Die)
And watching people cry
Let me break it down for a minute
If there’s enough room here for you and for me
There’s plenty of room for some humanity

Tell me
What’s going on
You got to tell me
(Tell me)
What’s going on
What’s going on
